London Has Fallen Review

Out now on DVD and Blu-ray, the sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen performs the old sequel trick of doing exactly what the first film did, only bigger. As is the case with a lot of b-movie action films, you’ll be asking yourself a lot of questions once the credits roll for London Has Fallen. Questions […]

100 Words or Less – The Mechanic

Title – The Mechanic Released – 2011 Director – Simon West Starring – Jason Statham, Ben Foster, Donald Sutherland Review – The Mechanic is much better than it has any right to be.

100 Words or Less – Assassins

Title – Assassins Released – 1995 Director – Richard Donner Starring – Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, Julianne Moore. Review – Assassins is awesome. It’s a classic, Stallone action film with the added bonus of a camp, over-the-top Antonio Banderas. They play rival assassins both out to kill 90’s computer whiz Julianne Moore. It’s a classier film than you first think, thanks […]
